OK, so last Sunday I did the illustration about the difference between guilt and shame. Guilt is like a good indicator light on your dashboard that alerts you something is wrong. But once it is taken care of, the guilt disappears, just like the indicator light goes off when it's problem is solved.
But my car has this broken tire indicator light. For eighteen months it has not gone out no matter if the problem is fixed or not. Shame is like that...pervasive...even after confession, even after the problem is solved.
So I get in the car after the service. The tire indicator light is out - totally fixed. The past four days it has not come on at all...first time in eighteen months...
Weird conincidence? Is there a hidden message? I'll let you decide!
